Hey guys! So, today's theme is underrated songs, so I'm just going to leave one mv down below. The singers name is Lee Michelle. She was born on September 9, 1991 in Paju, South Korea, a city in Gyeonggi Pronvince. After auditioning for K-pop Star Season 1 back in 2011, she signed with YG Entertainment as a part of a girl group called SuPearls. However, after two years of training, the group suddenly disbanded before they could debut and Lee's contract was nullified. Currently she is signed to DIMA Entertainment.
Here are some fun/interesting facts about Lee Michelle!
-She is born to a Korean mother and an African American father
-She grew up in Paju with her older sister and mother (her father returned to the US prior to her birth following her parent's separation. She doesn't not know who her father is)
-Since the age of five, Michelle and her sister would listen to her mother's H.O.T and Toni Braxton cassette tapes while trying to match their pitches and dances
-Like In Sooni and Yoon Mi Rae, fellow Black-Korean musicians, she faced constant discrimination for her biracial identity.
-"Without You", her debut singe, centers around the bullying she suffered through
-Michelle has never left South Korea and occasionally struggles with English.
What do you guys think? I REALLY love her voice and you can definitely hear the emotion in her voice. I know that a lot of us out there are suffering with bullying as well. A while back, I was placed in the hospital for the 5th time due to bullying. Just remember that we're all made differently. We're not all meant to be the same or take interests in the same thing. If you feel like you stand out or are different from the others, embrace it. Stay true to who you are, and you will get through it. You're all beautiful! Remember that!
